School Liaison Officers

School Liaison OfficersThrough a partnership with the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board, the CBRPS assigns police officers to work in schools throughout the CBRM to help ensure a positive and safe learning environment for students.

School Liaison Officers regularly patrol halls and school grounds, participate in school activities and programs and conduct class presentations on topics including drug and alcohol abuse, dating violence, and online bullying. The officers work closely with the Principal and school staff, and build relationships with the students to promote positive behaviours. This proactive approach helps prevent problems from arising; when they do, the officers are there to address and resolve them in a quick and peaceful manner, working with students, parents and school staff on a solution that best meets the needs of everyone involved.

School Liaison Officers are currently assigned to Sherwood Park Education Centre, Oceanview Education Centre, Malcolm Munroe Junior High, Sydney Academy, Riverview High School, Memorial High School, Glace Bay High School and Breton Education Centre.
